Happy New Year All,
I am looking for some help selecting bandsaw blades.
I finally ordered my first bandsaw, the Grizzly 0513anv, while it was on sale with free shipping. The saw takes a 131 1/2” blade from 1/8” to 1”.
I am looking for help in selecting a couple of good quality blades. I’d like to get a good resaw blade for this saw, and was wondering what size/tpi, brand, etc. peolple would reccommend for that. The specs on the saw says it is rated at 2hp on the 220v electric.
Also, what are folks using for general bandsaw work, breaking down materials, ripping, curves, etc..
Is a general blade and a dedicated resaw blade enough, or should I be looking more towards 3 or sdo different sizes/configurations to get started?
